What I see here is Sustainability in action, a deep Love for the Fruits of one's own Labor, and an exhilarating Understanding of Biodiversity.

The harvest cornucopia colors are gorgeous!

Up here on the 45th parallel we are jealous of the length of your growing season. Methinks our berries are a bit happier for the cooler temperatures though.

My friends from school (McGill University) have started a student-run ecological garden on campus with funds from the Sustainability Fund (0.50$ paid by students for each credit taken, and matched by University). I've been helping them along the way doing planting, weeding, stringing up tomatoes (on the to-do list for today), and selling our harvest at the farmer's market in town. It has been an overly positive experience to be involved with this project. Collaborations with established organic farms in the area have enriched this experience even further. Here's the blog...

Looking forward to seeing updated garden photos from your end! Let it grow and greatly yield!

Bandwidth issues at work won't let much of the blog site come up but rest assured I am going to read every word this evening.

Unless it's date night with Mrs. Mando, then we will be getting hot and sweaty together.

Outside in our gardens unfortunately.
